Lately more information is being provided on people who are empaths. As one, I’m happy that this knowledge is getting out there so empaths can be more understood. What is an empath? It’s a person who is highly sensitive and can deeply perceive emotions in other people and actually feel what they feel. So if someone is having a bad day, an empath would pick up on that in their own feelings and have a bad day. There are several blogs about empaths, one of them is Empath Zone. Check it out. You might find out that you or someone you love is also empathic.

So that leads to today’s book review, Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much by Colette Baron- Reid.

Description from Goodreads:

Here’s the truth: Other people’s drama is making you fat.
You’re a good person. You feel for other people’s troubles and challenges. Heck, you’re probably the go-to person for a whole list of people when the going gets tough!
But is your caring nature keeping you out of the best shape of your life?
Break the cycle and be the loving person you are–without letting other people’s drama keep you from being a hot mamma!
“Weight Loss for People Who Feel Too Much” focuses on the keys to weight loss for sensitive people. With a simple, practical program, bestselling author and internationally renowned intuitive counselor Colette Baron-Reid shows you how to release the extra pounds and create a new, healthy relationship with your body, your weight, and food.

My thoughts:

This is a 322 page book but it seems like it is more because there is just so much information
contained within. It’s not just for empathics but is good sound advice for anyone who needs to diet and eat better. It’s a spiritual book as much as it is a diet book.

What I like about the book is that it breaks down all the steps in the plan. It gives information
on the food industry to help you make better choices about which foods you eat. It provides
journaling questions and suggests you keep two journals and provides quizzes throughout the book that helps diagnose what areas you need help. There is also a resource section at the end of the book.

What I didn’t like about the book is that it was repetitive. The author seems to stick closely to
her own experiences. I think it would have been more helpful if she could have used some
testimonies from other people who have used this program.
I received a copy of this book from Crown Publishing Group through NetGalley in exchanged for a fair and honest review.
